Saw mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Alison gets the gun from Zep and aims it at him, the gun is in her left hand. In the next shot it's in her right hand, and then it moves back to her left hand again. This is not an artifact of changing camera angles, you can clearly see the different hands holding the gun. (01:20:30)

Saw mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Larry is desperately trying to reach for the cell phone, he uses the box that it came in. When that doesn't work he throws it off to the side (his left) but when we see it again the box is back where it originally was (on his right).

Continuity mistake: In the scene where. Lawrence and Adam find the 'X' on the wall, there is a continuity error. Right after they find the 'X', the lights are turned on and there is the shape of a square on the wall (the cavity where the box is hidden). Before they find the 'X' there is no box or any dirty lines where the cavity is. (00:54:00)

Continuity mistake: When Larry looks at the picture with Zep at the window, from one angle the picture is all crumpled but in the first person view, it's smooth. This changes several times. (01:18:40)


Continuity mistake: When Dr. Lawrence opened his envelope he got a key in it. When he tried it on the lock on his chain and it failed to open, Adam then asks to try it. Right when Adam asks for it, he puts his tape and envelope down separate, but when reaches for his tape again, it has ended up inside the envelope. (00:07:50)

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Gordon gets out of Tapp's car and is talking to him at the car window, the amount of shirt sleeve showing under his jacket changes between shots. (00:42:00)

Continuity mistake: When Adam retrieves the bag with the saws from the toilet, he places it on his right side. At one point you can see that there is nothing on his left side, but the next shot shows Adam grabbing the bag from his left side and tossing it into the tub. (00:14:00)

Saw mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Dr. Gordon rips open his envelope near the start. When he does he rips it with the "A" in "Lawrence" still visible. Camera cuts and the rip has moved down to take off half of the "W". (00:06:45)

Continuity mistake: When Adam is walking into his apartment, his camera has a short lens on it. He then rounds the corner and goes into the darkroom and the camera has a long lens on it.

Continuity mistake: When Adam throws the picture that he found in Lawrence's wallet to him, the picture lands next to the rectangular piece of tile that Lawrence uses in the immediate next shot to bring the picture closer to him. The tile moves from in front of him (given it's proximity to the photo) to right beside his right arm/hand. It "moved" about two feet.

Continuity mistake: Dr. Gordon gets a key in his envelope. The way he hold it changes instantly. Note the straight edge. (00:07:10)

More trivia for Saw

Question: How exactly was Adam supposed to win the game? We know the Doctor had to kill Adam before 6 to live, but how was Adam meant to get out? Was he there solely for the Doctor to kill or was there a way out for him that I've missed?

Answer: Amanda was supposed to put the key around Adam's neck rather than just on his chest. If she had done so as instructed by Jigsaw, he would've been able to unlock his shackle and leave the bathroom. Adam was a voyeur, the irony being that if his key had been placed correctly around his neck, all he would've had to do would be to look around to find it. Adam's tape states, "what do voyeurs see when they look into the mirror, " so, again, it's a hint that all Adam would've had to do was look at himself. I noticed as well, Jigsaw says, "the key to that chain is in the bathtub." /IS/ in the bathtub. Not /was/. So Jigsaw probably thought Adam could still get out. He says, "so many people are ungrateful to be alive. But not you. Not anymore." So it's like, 'I have taught you this lesson, now you can go free because now you'll appreciate your life unlike you did before'.

Answer: Adam was never supposed to win, I don't recall which movie, I believe it be the 5th where John is talking to Amanda and says how her games were rigged and impossible to win, and Adam and Lawrence were part of Amanda's game.
